Tai Chi 5 Move Form: Qi Sao and a martial applications

1) The up and down beginning move can be used for deepening your root or unrooting an opponent grabbing you.

2) The turning inside-to-outside block on top of the extended arm, is done with the outside-to-inside lower block.

3) and (4 are the Reeling Silk move, the martial focus is to grab or stick to the opponent's extended arm blocking, while the other arm is using a ridge hand to the Heart point in the armpits.

The martial drill that is not often practiced involves the sensitivity to the incoming opponent's power, balance and grounding.

If the opponent has a lot of forward momentum: the blocking hand would deflect quickly. When the opponent is stationary and firmly rooted: the blocking hand would pull you closer to the opponent's flank.

These exercise are Northern Shaolin Buddhist Qi Sao (Sau) or Chi Sao. Some of the Wing Chun Chi Sao are similiar.

5) The Press can:

a] be used as a push or

b] a check to prevent forward movement or pin a key point such as an elbow or

c] forward strike to the Heart or solar plexus.

Xingyi is based on the same Five Element Theory as acupuncture. Practicing a form will strengthen the associated internal organ, for example practicing Xingyi Fire will stengthen the heart.

Many of the Xingyi sets shown in the videos have martial combinations that are not in the traditional sets. The Xingyi video has martial drills for:

1) going backwards or forwards,

2) at an angle or straight on and

3) continuing on the same side or switching sides or

4) have combinations of the 1st move being defensive feeding into the 2nd move and/or

5) have moves that can change from being defensive to offensive and visa-versa that are called dynamic striking blocks (covers).

Axe Hand; Hsing-i & Internal Strength Workout

The DVD has the Xingyi 5 Elements, Xingyi Animals, Xingyi Linking sets, Xingyi 5 Elements Metal with Saber & Iron Pole (Spear), 7-Star Praying Mantis Bong Po, Jade Dragon, short staff (Bo), 2 Section Staff (nunchakus) and Qigong.

Many begin with the Xingyi Element Metal or Axe Hand, since the stationary San Ti Shi Qigong uses this position.

Some prefer Xingyi Water, since Axe Hand has an upward movement before the downward movement.

A basic principle of education is to go from the known, to the related unknown.

Others will start with a move most similar to one known by the student before:

1) Tai Chi practitioners use the internal lower downward inside-to-outside block combination of ' Brush Knee' to learn the Xingyi Element Wood;

2) Tai Chi practitioners use the backward stepping ' Repulse Monkey' to learn the forward stepping Xingyi Monkey.

3) Internal Kung Fu practitioners of the Wide Circle will use the horizontal Jade Dragon move to learn Xingyi Monkey.

All of the above are included in the DVD Video.

The entire Five Elements should be learned first.

Many of the Xingyi Animals have recognizable foundations in the Xingyi Elements, such as:

1) Water in Dove, Bear and Snake,

2) Metal in Tiger and reverse side in Dragon and Eagle,

3) Fire in Turtle

For those who practice Xingyi 5 Element Spear Metal, it is helpful to use the spear to teach the stepping, downward striking of 'empty hand' Xingyi Metal. Xingyi was founded on the moves of the spear.

Red Hands Show Qi Power

Qi (internal energy) is critical to the effectiveness, power and health benefits of the Martial Arts and Qigong (energy work). Without Qi, moves are hollow representations of genuine internals. One must practice forms correctly to benefit from these ancient disciplines.

One must have a qualified instructor to learn from, or the moves will not work. It is difficult to determine who is qualified, since anyone can declare themselves a master, or make up a style on their own. Others will use colorful clothing and uniforms to appear legitimate

Heat is an excellent indicator of the presence and strength of Qi. Objective tests can be used to check the quality of teachers of Martial Arts and Qigong by viewing videos of them practicing, that anyone can use; which shows the hands turning red. Infrared pictures and monitors show the heat related to Qi also.

Tai Chi and Internal Martial Arts Masters, the hands will turn reddish just before the power of a strike is released; then it turns back to a more whitish tone. In this case the test is not to have the skin be red all the time.

You can see the Red Hands in the photo used on the Xingyi DVD video, practicing Xingyi Dragon.

Since this happens in fractions of a second, it is hard to spot. Those with a quick eye, can spot this while watching a video. This can be confirmed by stopping and starting the video to catch the instant when the hands turn red. You can view an internal form and take the video through a software package that will let you view and save the individual frames of the movie picture. You can buy these, and some come installed on the cameras themselves.

For Tai Chi and Internal Martial Arts Masters, the hands will turn reddish just before the power of a strike is released; then it turns back to a more whitish tone.

In this case the test is not to have the skin be red all the time.

When one practices an internal set, different surface areas will redden within a range of from fractions of a second to a few seconds; as the Qi is temporarily chambered before it is issued. A trained eye of a quick fighter can see this.

You can see who have the real power for yourself, when you know how to look for it.

Telephone Pole Bowed With Internal Iron Palm Strike From Xingyi Metal

The telephone pole does not move at the top or bottom. Sometimes the wind will SWAY trees, moving the top although the bottom remains fixed to the ground. Some can push a tree and get it to SWAY also.

See that the top of the telephone pole does not move, this is not swaying.

This is a bulge, bowing or boeing of the telephone pole by an internal strike.

If you compare the first picture, before the of telephone pole is hit, with the next picture after the pole is hit; you will see that the telephone pole's location on top toward the wire is unchanged; whereas the telephone pole location relative to the horizontally oval window in the boat has moved; documenting the bending, or bowing of the telephone pole: not moving of the pole.

Learning Xingyi

Xingyi has a different way of stepping and whole body movement. One must first practice the Scissor-Stepping unique to Xingyi, to get the flow without focusing on anything else.

One does not try to go fast nor with power or they will move as they did before. When the form and flow are pure; the speed and powerful will come to the practitioner.

One concentrates on the essence of the move, or what Plato calls the universal (that which is in common with all manifestations of the move).

When a particular attack or defense is practiced, only the strengths and weaknesses of that application are seen.

Most Xingyi moves have at least 2 parts to them, usually a move that is from a different direction that compliments the second move This can act to distract, compliment or defend the second primary move.

In Xingyi Metal, the first move is upward, followed by the downward axe hand.

A downward movement by itself is predictable and not practical, which is why many Aikido players use their defence against the shuto, to make themselves look good.

Xingyi Metal uses an up and down combination, the first upward movement like Xingyi Water:

(1) clears and blocks the opponent's space,

(2) causes the opponent to shift weight to respond to an upward movement and

(3) immediately hits downward from the opposite, unexpected oppisite downward direction of the axe hand.

Xingyi Wood is similar in its first downward block, followed with a mid-level reverse punch. Most Hsing-i Elements and Animal sets, have two moves.
